Electronic Device Physics Based Modelling and Simulation Driving Moore's Law into the Future

A new year, a new beginning! IEEE EDS Student Branch Chapter Dhaka University has also started a new journey with a new executive committee. On this occasion, IEEE EDS SBC DU came up with another seminar this month titled “Electronic Device Physics Based Modelling and Simulation Driving Moore’s Law into the Future” on 12th January. Your presence will be a great pleasure to us!

Computers and electronics play an enormous role in today’s society, impacting everything from communication and medicine to science. Although computers are typically viewed as a modern invention involving electronics, computing predates the use of electrical devices. The ancient abacus was perhaps the first digital computing device. The introduction of electric power in the 19th century led to the rise of electrical and hybrid electro-mechanical devices to carry out both digital and analog calculation. The presentation of the Edison Effect in 1885 provided the theoretical background for electronic devices. Originally in the form of vacuum tubes, electronic components were rapidly integrated into electric devices. With the invention of solid-state electronics, the transistor and ultimately the integrated circuit, computers would become much smaller and eventually affordable for the average consumer. Today “computers” are present in nearly every aspect of everyday life, from watches to automobiles.

Electronic device technology continues to revolutionize the world around us. The promise of Moore’s Law to bring about improved lives through betterment of healthcare, communication, transport, automation, etc. is being kept alive through relentless efforts of engineers and scientists in the industry and in academia. One prime tributary to this valiant undertaking is computer modeling and simulation of electronic devices/circuits based on principles of electronic device physics – which is the cornerstone of modern day Technology Computer Aided Design (TCAD). This presentation aims to provide an overview of the TCAD models and approaches that are the work-horse behind transistor Technology Development (TD) at the current and future technology nodes, and, also behind the circuit/standard-cell Design and transistor Technology Co-Optimization (DTCO). It will touch upon the principles of Device Physics that are woven into such models and approaches to achieve high accuracy/predictability.
